Terrorists killed 4 razed 50 houses in fresh Plateau attack

Terrorists seeking to grab land have  killed four persons and set over 50 houses ablazed in attacks on two village; Zanwah and Nchetahu of Miango District in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.

It was learnt that the attackers were said to have invaded the villages on Saturday night killing four people and leaving several others injured, while an additional four corpses were said to be recovered from the bush on Sunday.

 But government officials never refer to the attackers as terrorists, at worst they are referred to as gunmen.
In their account of the incident, the police in a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer, Gabriel Ubah, said the command received a report of a conflict between gunmen suspected to be Fulani militia and youths from Irigwe community.

They said four natives were killed and 50 houses were burnt.

The state Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Egbuka, has visited the scene in the company of other senior officers of the command.
CP Egbuka has now ordered an investigation.
